WE promote a wider understanding of
the challenges facing civil aviation in Europe


Airports Council International Europe (ACI EUROPE), founded in 1991, represents the interests of over 500 airports in 45 European countries. Our members facilitate over 90% of commercial air traffic in Europe: 2.3 billion passengers, 21.2 million tonnes of freight and 25.7 million aircraft movements in 2018. These airports contribute to the employment of 12.3 million people, generating €675 billion each year (4.1%) of GDP in Europe.

Our membership is comprised of airport operators of all sizes, along with national airport associations, world business partners and educational establishments. Working together in an active association to ensure effective communication and advocacy with legislative, commercial, technical, environmental, passenger and other interests. The members of ACI EUROPE are competitors in the airport market place and support free and fair competition.

ACI EUROPE is the European trade body for airports and as such, is also the European region of Airports Council International, the only global federation of airport operators. ACI EUROPE is based in Brussels, Belgium and employs a full time staff of 19 people, under the leadership of Director General Olivier Jankovec.
